Storybird.com-- another fun writing tool!

Check out storybird.com for free art to inspire you to write stories inspired by them.  The stories you create can be private or shared within the storybird library!  The art available is really quite amazing!  Some is just truly beautiful and some is hilarious.  I put together a quick social story on using peaceful negotiation to solve fighting.

LitLift! Free Cool Writing Software

So, I am in a library class called Multimedia Resources and Services, so my mind is on apps and programs-- a lot.  Free apps, specifically and Web 2.0 tools.  I went into this class kicking and screaming, but now I find it more fun that I thought possible to use these tools.  So today, I thought to myself, "Well, I know I've tried Scrivner, but is there a free writing app, I wonder, that might help me structure my new WIP?"

And I typed it in Google and found litlift.com, which is free writing software online.  It's so easy to use!  And so fun!  I know those of you who just down and write won't use something like this, but for the rest of us, this might be a fun tool to try out during NANO!

Peace out-
